Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Sydney Boat Show, the Italian shipyard will be on display with three models. The 280GT with its reverse bow appears both sharp and massive at the same time, merging into the sides of the hull without using uniform transitions between full and empty shapes, while the cabin windows and the air intakes for the engines are shaped like simple lines that emphasise the monolithic characters that Christian Grande desired. The choice of this particular bow structure also allows for a longer waterline length for increased lengthwise stability, and regarding interior space, allows for a substantial increase in below-deck livability.
Surfaces are designed as if they were carved shapes, and impart a sensation of sturdiness that is able to withstand any kinds of abuse and the worst aggression of the sea. The concept of sturdiness takes nothing away from the very attentive approach that has always characterised the work of the designer from Parma: the Invictus open yachts are always very attentive to every detail, from the choice of finishings to the completeness of the equipment.
The bridge, which also includes access to the interior, is protected by a wide sweeparound windscreen and equipped with the latest digital instrumentation, and includes a video monitor and a very useful inclinometer.
